Am posting this over lunch at work...and realizing that I have no recent photos on file here that I can share. I will get some up to date ones posted another day, but for now will share some images of my gorgeous girl from our July 2007 trip to Florence, Venice and England...
Here is my sweetie-pie in front of the beautiful cathedral in Pisa (sometimes overlooked in favour of its more famous bell tower, which is very fun to climb, I must admit!)
M'lady, your Florentine carriage awaits...
Looking very chic in Piazzale Michelangelo, with its stunning view of the Duomo and Florence's historic centre:
The archway at the end of the campo where our apartment in Venice was located:
M looks ready to attend Carnivale in her new gown (made in Paris) and Venetian mask!
Onward ho to England we go! We were fortunate to visit Sutton Hoo on the annual reenactment weekend! So the site was filled with folks in period costumes, battle scenes, birds of prey displays. We happened along just at the right moment, and M got to hold one of the owls:
The amazing labyrinth at the Norwich cathedral:
M and my brother Alec inside the British Museum, the Elgin marbles room (which was SO cool):
The magical, mystical Stonehenge experience! I highly recommend the special 'off hours' tours offered through the English Heritage Society, so can get right in amongst the stones):
Always the animal lover, here's M with my father's dog in his backyard (near Southwold, Suffolk):
